What’s Up Cover featuring Idiot Pilot

This came about just as Idiot Pilot landed their song on the soundtrack to the first Transfomers movie. Well, no, not the animated movie, the Michael Bay movie. I remember it being odd that I had to work through their manager in LA to get to their record rep at wherever even though they probably lived like a block from me. Not a swipe against them or anything, these guys are the nicest guys ever and earned their success.

People either liked or hated this cover, and I overheard a few conversations about how lame it was that What’s Up! went the “Teen Heartthrob” route  on this one.

The unnerving fact is that I lifted the basic layout from an adult DVD jacket.
